Sony Might Announce FE 14mm f/1.8 GM instead of 16mm for its Next Lens

By on

In addition to the FE 35mm f/1.4, and three new compact G lenses; Sony is on the verge to announce FE 14mm f/1.8 GM lens.

The rumored FE 14mm f/1.8 GM will be the fastest and widest prime lens in Sony G Master (GM) arsenal and one of the fastest ultra-wide primes on the market. Designed for landscape, nature, street photography and astrophotography; this Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM lens will be the world’s fastest 14mm full frame lens ever made. It will be about the same size and build quality as the FE 24mm f/1.4 GM. This means the price tag could be very expensive.

We previously reported that Sony could announce the FE 16mm f/1.8 GM lens in early 2021. It looks like Sony is changing the focal length for this lens, and recent rumors are that it will be the FE 14mm f/1.8 GM. Currently, the widest angle f/1.8 FE lens for Sony mirrorless cameras is the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art FE ($1,599). This 14mm is expected to be smaller and lighter than the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens.

This is the FE 24mm f/1.4 GM. The new 14mm lens will be in the same size and build quality as this one.

The Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 G Master will supposedly arrive before Summer, giving astrophotographers and wide-angle fiends something to drool over by chopping a full 10mm off of the fastest ultra-wide prime in the current G Master lineup: the FE 24mm f/1.4 GM. This will be an excellent addition to the current Sony FE 20mm f/1.8 G lens ($898)
